A number of Bundesliga clubs and Middle East teams have joined chase for Joleon Lescott, according to Sky sources.

Lescott found himself as fourth choice behind Vincent Kompany, Martin Demichelis and Matija Nastasic at Manchester City last season, meaning his game time was limited, featuring just 10 times in the Premier League. A January loan move was rumoured but never occurred, putting an end to any chance of the defender making England's World Cup squad, and both the club and the player allowed his contract to run down, meaning he is now a free agent. At 31 years old Lescott still had a lot to offer and could be a fine free transfer for a non-top four team. Aston Villa, West Ham, and former club Everton have all been linked, as well as Turkish side Besiktas, German outfit Schalke and Al Ain in the UAE.

Winston Reid will miss his international duty with New Zealand since he has still not recovered from a hamstring injury.

New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson stated that the team have given Winston every chance to be fit but he hasn't responded well to treatment and they will not even fly him out to join the squad. He also made it sound like Reid is close to returning, so it is not out of the question he is fit for next weekend when West Ham face Leicester City. Keep an eye out for his fitness levels before deciding on your GW31 fantasy team.

Eden Hazard has stated he would back a Petr Cech exit this summer after the goalkeeper made comments regarding a summer move.

Cech mentioned in recent days that he would consider leaving Stamford Bridge this summer because he doesn't want to spend another season as an understudy to Thibaut Courtois. The news is unsurprising, as the 32-year-old only has a few years of football left and he understandably wants to start, especially given the fact he is still one of the best goalkeepers around. Cech has been linked with Liverpool and Arsenal amongst other teams, but it's uncertain if Cech wants to remain in the Premier League or leave for another league. He is not a fantasy option at the moment and there is a chance he never will be in the Premier League again.

Kelvin Davis is faced with a great opportunity to shine at Southampton after Fraser Forster was ruled out for the rest of the season.

Forster underwent knee surgery earlier this week and will miss at least the remainder of the season and quite possibly a big part of next season. Davis is the next in line at Southampton and will be faced with a big challenge ahead of him as the Saints fight for a European spot. Forster leads the league in clean sheet at the moment, partially due to Southampton's great defense, so Davis is certainly in a great situation to succeed. With Everton, Hull City, and Stoke next, Davis is a great investment in fantasy.

John Terry has inked a new one-year extension with Chelsea.

The Blues defender has had a phenomenal season and has looked terrific next to both Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma. He is not as fast or as athletic as he was in his prime, but Terry is smarter than ever and uses his experience to his advantage to make up for lost speed. He hasn't slowed down one bit and there are no signs of him dropping off next-season. He is a great fantasy option in draft-leagues as he provides great weekly clean sheet chances and scores the eventual goal to provide upside.

Everton have been boosted by the news that the knee injury suffered by Arouna Kone at Loftus Road in GW30 is not serious although the striker remains a doubt for the visit of Southampton next time out.

Roberto Martinez confirmed following the win at QPR that Romelu Lukaku and Arouna Kone had picked up injuries which would need to be assessed although it was the latter who was the greater cause for concern. However following further tests it now looks the hamstring strain suffered by Lukaku could keep him out for around three weeks while Kone may be back within two. Steven Naismith is a potential option having been utilised in a more advanced role previously while Christian Atsu will be hoping for a rare opportunity to shine for the Toffees having managed just one league start since his loan move from Chelsea last summer.

A groin problem threatens to sideline Tom Cleverley as injuries begin to mount at Villa although the timely return of Joe Cole [hamstring] could provide the perfect tonic as Tim Sherwood insists the attacking midfielder still has something to offer during the season run-in.

Cole was injured as Sherwood came on-board back in February and hasn’t featured since but now that the player is approaching full fitness the new Villa boss feels the former England international can still affect games "He can score and he can assist." Regardless of whether Cleverley recovers prior to GW31 the Manchester United loanee won’t be eligible for the trip to Old Trafford under the terms of his agreement which could hand Cole his chance. With no fewer than [11] players currently sidelined Villa will be hoping the international break will be kind with Christian Benteke, Jores Okore, Alan Hutton, Ciaran Clark, Fabian Delph and Carles Gil all currently representing their countries.

Jack Colback's suspension and subsequent two quiet games has seen his fantasy price steadily decline in recent weeks to a very appealing figure.

After a disappointing two point return against Arsenal, Colback has seen his price drop to 7.76m in the Yahoo game, representing solid value at the midfield position. Unlike other players who have been similarly underpriced; Dusan Tadic, Nacer Chadli and Seb Larsson, it doesn't require traditional attacking points for Colback to put up nice scores. Whether the past two games are an anomaly or a sign of a dip in form will require another week or two to determine, but if he returns to the level of production he was offering most of the season, then investors will be rewarded without spending very much.

Wayne Routledge isn't making his name on the score sheet often for Swansea City but he has been a steady contributor for them recently.

Averaging 7.5 points per game for the past couple of weeks is not going to get his name on the leaderboard but it is a decent number when one considers it comes without the aid of a goal or an assist. He is well behind Bafetimbi Gomis and Gylfi Sigurdsson as a scoring threat but he is due to add one to his resume soon. A home match against Hull next up may provide the right environment. For under 7m in Yahoo, he is another budget midfielder to consider in Week 31.

Steven Gerrard's inexplicable red card and resulting ban should give Joe Allen a few more starts, with Lucas a potential option as well now that he is fit.

When Brendan Rodgers has no injuries or suspensions to deal with, he would have a weekly selection dilemma with four seasoned PL players battling it out for two positions in central midfield. However, things have worked out where he rarely has all four available. One spot is certainly locked up now and perhaps for seasons to come by Jordan Henderson. With Gerrard suspended for the next three and leaving Anfield at season's end, the other spot is down to Allen and Lucas with the former having the slight edge at the moment. Neither are appealing in fantasy however.

Seamus Coleman scored a crucial goal to help Everton to a win over QPR last weekend and he appears to be a better pick than Leighton Baines in fantasy at the moment.

It has been a while since we have seen the attacking exploits of Coleman, something that had been commonplace in the previous two seasons, but the tough reality is that it has been a while since Baines has been a fantasy stud either. To be fair to the left back, he is still the third-highest scoring defender in Yahoo this season, but unlike in previous seasons, he isn't creating much distance between himself and several defenders who are priced millions less. Just this past week Coleman outscored his teammate 13 to 4, yet Baines got the bigger rise in price even though both have the same ownership percentage. All it takes is for one penalty to set Baines up for a monster day, but week to week, Coleman is matching him on a points per pound basis. With his attacking form emerging, that should only tip the scales in Coleman's favor.

Danny Rose became the latest England international to withdraw from the upcoming games with Lithuania and Italy after picking up an unspecified injury in training.

Rose was a late addition to the England squad - replacing Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw [hamstring] - but the FA confirmed on Wednesday that the defender had returned to Tottenham for treatment following a problem during todays' session. With no additional call-ups at the time of writing Leighton Baines looks certain to start in both games although Ryan Bertrand would be an obvious choice should Roy Hodgson decide to bring in a replacement. Rose is one of five withdrawals already this week joining Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge and Fraser Forster while Fabian Delph has been struggling with illness and Raheem Sterling is managing a toe complaint.
